Android tablet refers to any tablet-sized computer that runs on Google's Android OS (operating system). Not only are Android based tablets capable of running work applications, but they can also be used for communication or entertainment on the go.
Some of the key considerations when buying an Android tablet should be screen size, processing power, screen quality, battery life, storage options (inbuilt storage versus expandable storage), RAM, design and price. All considerations should be made based on intended use. Other alternatives to an Android tablet include: Microsoft's Surface Pro that runs on Windows, Apple's iPad that runs on iOS or Amazon's Kindle Fire that runs on the Fire OS.
